Feeling a chill yet? If there’s one positive to the cooler weather it’s the opportunity to show of your winter style. We’ve broken down the season’s key pieces for men in the game right now. Form a jacket and jersey combo to the ever stylish Harrington jacket!
The modest bomber has come a long way from its military origins, moving from the literal runway to the fashion runway. Worn by fighter pilots during World War I, the bomber is the MVP of any outerwear line-up! For a casual look, combine your bomber with a pair of jeans or chinos and then either a T-shirt or a sweatshirt depending on the weather. Add a pair of sneakers and you’ve got a perfect look for the weekend.
To elevate your bomber to a smarter look for the office, select a sophisticated style in a neutral colour and replace your casual tee with a crew neck or golf shirt. Finish off the look with a great pair of trainers, boat shoe or a classic boot. For gents who like an on-trend look, a bold bomber is especially effective if layered above a patterned shirt or bulked-up over a hoodie. For a stylish athleisure look, try pairing your bomber with slim leg denims that are cropped just on the ankle. This takes your classic look up a level with a touch of street cred.
A versatile layering option to add a little intrigue to your otherwise straightforward work wardrobe, a few choice knits can be the difference between a bland and bold look. This winter staple will keep you looking cool and staying warm for almost any occasion.
For a casual look when a tee just won’t cut it, try the classic crew neck with a pair of denims, your favourite kicks and a cap or beanie to finish the look. Lazy day? Simply swap the denims for a pair of joggers. For added texture and detailing play around with the knitwear patterns and don’t be afraid to experiment with colours and combinations!
Dressing your knit up is the fun part! For a more formal look, pair a roll neck with a Harrington or a parka jacket. This will bring a touch of sophistication to an already well-rounded look. A neutral roll neck coupled with a bold contrasting jacket (or vice versa) will show that you know what you’re doing when it comes to styling! Don’t forget you can also suit your chenille knit up as a layer between a blazer and a shirt for the office, along with your boots or oxfords of course.
